Time To Do Better

Edwards says players hurt by results

Dave Edwards has revealed Wolves know they should be doing far better than they have in recent games – but insists confidence has not been knocked by the recent run.


The Welsh international midfielder says the fans’ disappointment at recent games is felt just as keenly within the dressing room, but is confident Wolves will return to winning ways provided they keep their nerve.

“It hurts us not getting results and I think we are in a position now that we shouldn’t be in with the squad we have got and the players we have got,” he says.

“It is not acceptable for us in this league to go five games without a win.

“We have got one of the best squads in the league and there is no one more disappointed than us in the dressing room that we are not higher than we are.

“Hopefully the fans understand we are feeling it too because we don’t want them to be disappointed either.

“I thought those that went to Hull were great and clapped us off at the end and could see the commitment.

“We were bitterly disappointed again.

“We didn’t have the cutting edge on Tuesday and that’s something we need to address.

“If we can do that hopefully we can get back to winning ways tomorrow.”

Edwards believes even in winning five out of six prior to the recent poor run, Wolves hadn’t really scaled the heights in terms of performances.

But he is trying  to view that as a positive – the best is still to come!

“These last few games haven’t knocked our confidence,” he adds.

“Everyone is trying to get on the ball – no one is shying away from the task – and it will be the same again tomorrow.

“I think performances have been o-k – we haven’t hit the dizzy heights but I think that was the same when we were winning games.

“When we were on the good run we were doing what we had to do to win games and we still haven’t hit top gear.

“In a way I think that is a good thing – it is still to come but we have got to do it quickly.

“The hard work is going on in training and we have got the organisation and commitment.

“Hopefully if we keep doing the right things on the training pitch and approach games in the right way it will all click and come together.

“If everyone to a man is as professional as they can be then that will shine through and everything will come together.”
